About my Teaching

I love teaching! I trace this enthusiasm back to my tenure as a National Youth Leadership Training staffer at Camp Westmoreland in the BSA’s Greater Alabama Council. NYLT utilizes youth instructors for teaching all courses, giving my teenaged self the opportunity to educate my peers on how to be better leaders and teachers. Years later I used those skills as I became an instructor of mathematics at several institutions of higher education.

Teaching Note


My philosophy of teaching is available with my CV on GitHub.


During my time at Auburn University, UNC Charlotte, and now South Alabama, I’ve had the opportunity to work with hundreds of students as the instructor of several mathematics courses. I think that I’ve done well overall, and this is reflected by the evaluations they’ve left me. I’ve included excerpts from each semester I’ve taught since Fall 2012 on my evaluations page.
